Ash, Iris & Trip's Final Battle (753)

Ash had a great line of stupidity in this episode - telling Pignite that it had the type advantage over Serperior and then immediately using Tackle, the only move Pignite has that isn't super-effective. Of course considering Serperior was somehow fast enough to almost teleport out of the way, it doesn't really matter.
Lol, Ash's comment was actually just clueless of him since he should've known by now that type advantages mean nothing.

How is it stupidity lmao?

Pignite using Tackle doesn't negate the fact that Pignite in itself has an advantage over Serperior due to its typing, making Serperior's Grass type moves ineffective. What Ash said was completely correct. Furthermore, Ash kept using Flame Charge (in addition to other Fire type moves but you seem to ignore that part lol) in that battle trying to enhance Pignite's speed and it's complete BS that Serperior was so fast it practically teleported from place to place.

Ash was smart in this battle. The writers failed by making Trip's victory completely forced. IMO, it would have made more impact if Trip lost therefore losing the chance to face Alder.

Krokorok taking a large number of attacks from Dragonite was a bit confusing. I disliked it when Dragonite started rampaging after getting hit by Krookodile's Dragon Claw. At least he finally lost. Pignite vs Serperior could have been better, since the latter looked overpowered. I didn't mind Trip getting to battle Alder, since he ended up getting eliminated from most other tournaments.
7/10
 
Krokorok evolving and learning Dragon Claw was pretty cool, but Trip's Serperior being fast enough to dodge each one of Pignite's attacks was just stupid. Dragonite losing control after being hit by Dragon Claw really didn't make any sense. Either way, that was an awesome Dragonite vs. Krookodile battle, assuming we ignore the fact that Dragonite suddenly turning over a new leaf.

It seemed as if Kairyu feeling the pressure of a tough opponent for once enraged him, and he simply lost his cool.
